Links to EU and international policy in Estonia
The Estonian state established its commitment to Goal 4 of the SDG through the Estonian National Strategy on Sustainable Development “Sustainable development 21”. The strategy encourages the development of educational system in Estonia to ensure equal access to high-quality education for all different social groups in order to foster the functionality of an information-society. The strategy emphasizes Estonia’s potential to develop a strong adult education structure, and in doing so points out the value of lifelong learning, soft skills and teacher capacity, and how important it is to improve the present system. However, according to our members, Estonia must still work to raise the awareness of the benefits of life-long learning among its population.
